I'll Find A Way, the latest album from legendary Gospel group The Blind Boys of Alabama, is a collaborative effort with Justin Vernon from Bon Iver. The seasoned veterans allow their vintage sound to have a more modern touch with Vernon's production, and guest features from Tune-Yards, Patty Griffin, Shara Worden, Sam Amidon, and Phil Cook.

Having three blind singers in the group, The Blind Boys Of Alabama have always been a source of motivation for disabled people in the arts. The inspirational themes of their past material are still present, being very evident on the track “Take Your Burden to the Lord and Leave It There.” The album features the group covering songs from other artists, including Bob Dylan's “Every Grain of Sand.”

I'll Find A Way is now available on iTunes. The group is currently on a North American tour, check the dates below:
